Google Now Support

Boarding Pass API includes a feature to support Google Now, the personal intelligent assistant for Android and iPhone mobile devices.

This enables passengers to get real-time flight status information at the appropriate time, for example, on the way to the airport, or have their boarding pass displayed automatically at the security gate. Reminders and updates are displayed on the home or lock screen of the device, without having to open the app.

The Google Now feature is activated by including a markup tag, ${Sys.GoogleNowMarkup}, in the body of the Boarding Pass email template.

Both the departure and arrival time must be entered in the issue boarding pass request and the request must be for a real, valid scheduled flight, so this can't be used during development.

Note: This feature isn't available on the Boarding Pass Demo on developer.aero as it only works with valid flights.
